Asia Pacific Sustainability

Asia Pacific Sustainability

November 2012

This issue sees us look at some of the progress being made towards sustainability in the retail sector. Many shopping centre owners and retailers remain unconvinced of the financial returns to be gained from investing in sustainability, whilst the complex nature of shopping malls makes it challenging to introduce legislation for energy usage and environmental impacts. Retailers have also yet to make the same environmental requirements of landlords as office occupiers. However, we are now beginning to see some encouraging progress in the retail sector in Asia Pacific by a select group of developers with long standing commitments to sustainability. In our main feature we examine how these market leaders are integrating environment and social issues into the construction and management of their retail property holdings and investments.
